I really cant care less if they cheated 3dmark03, it's business, and business in the graphics card market is cut-throat.

Unless they are cheating in games, I really dont care, I think 3dmark03 is a ****ty benchmark anyhow. A CPU speed difference of 600-700mhz (which I have tested) makes not a single difference to your 3d Mark score, or miniscule differences to selective tests, yet, in games this CPU speed increase would make a huge difference.

There is clearly no link between your performance in 3dmark03 and ANY games out now. It's merely a tool for manufacturers to optimize their products for to sell their graphics cards.
